Any differences in V Star 950s over the past few years

Other than Color has there been any major modifications in V Star 950s from 2015 to 2017? The reason why I ask is because I can get a 2015 950 for $3000 cheaper than a 2017 950.

What little research I've been able to do evil results in virtually no difference. With the difference in between the 2015 and 2017, you could do some nice upgrades.

Only differences are the quick release windshield and sissy bar. Not worth 3 grand. I'm with Keith, go with the 2015.

Hey Evil Dave , there are only 3 differences:
1) Color
2) Quick release backrest (passenger)
3) Quick release windshield
In 2016 Yamaha stopped making the Standard 950 and is only making the 950 Tourer but they are all now equipped with the quick release passenger back rest and quick release windshield.

If ya don't care about the color go for the 2015 or even 2016. There are great deals out there.
